Tim Duncan Returning to Spurs for 19th Season

Considering Tim Duncan was a part of the free-agent pitch to LaMarcus Aldridge, everybody assumed he’d return for a 19th season. Sure enough, Duncan confirmed that on Thursday:

Even at the ripe old age of 39, Duncan was solid last season and brilliant in the Spurs’ first-round series loss against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Spurs legend averaged 17.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists in the series against a great starting frontcourt, proving that he’s basically ageless.

With Danny Green back and Aldridge possibly in the fold, San Antonio is set to make another run at title No. 6. Manu Ginobili still has to make a decision as well, but with Duncan returning, you’d have to think Ginobili will be back as well.

The Spurs had to deal Tiago Splitter to create cap room, but if this offseason results in Duncan, Ginobli and Green back to go along with an Aldridge signing, it doesn’t get much better than that.
